    Considering buying MacBook Pro 13". Need to be able to use Blue Snowball mic and Audio Technica ATC-M30 for voiceover work. Is this possible?

    i think the 13,s have a single input/output port for audio,
    i know headphones with a mic work,ie mobile ph h/phones,

    you may find it hard to have a mic in,and a line out,at the same time,there is always usb audio pre amps tho,there not even that expensive,its actually better to use a pre amp when inputting mics/guitars etc,more balanced signal,

    the 15/17,s have a separate audio i//o =minijack stereo,whereas the 13 has one single mini jack port,that shares both,[im pretty sure it does]

    You could use something like this to connect both at the same time.

    Thanks for the advice. Need to find a solution to be able to record voice-overs with decent audio quality on the road.
